In my smb.conf, I have 2 servers specified in "password server"


password server = windc01, windc02

windc01 crashed, and Samba did not fail over to the second entry
(windc02). Netbios/WINS resolution is correct for both servers. The log
entry corresponding to this event was "Connection to  lost". Is this
expected behavior?

smbd -V = Version 3.0.9-1
